Photos: ‘Triumph’ is drawing fans with its magic and dancing
Wed, Feb 2, 2011 (11:55 a.m.)
Magic fans have discovered the as-yet-not-officially-opened Triumph at the Las Vegas Hilton and are raving about the preview illusions of LaRaf. The show still has to include its disappearing steam locomotive arriving Feb. 16 before its gala premiere later this month.
Contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was front row and center to capture the show’s progress and the amazing performer portraits ahead of the official opening.
Tom told me: “The reaction is quite unbelievable. People absolutely love the journey back in time. The dancing is phenomenal, and Rafael is mesmerizing audiences with his breathtaking aerials. It’s all very remarkable.“
As word spreads, the crowds have been growing nightly, and dozens wait afterward for autographs and photographs with Larry and Rafael. VegasDeLuxe.com previously posted a story about Triumph’s arrival at the Hilton and its story of time travel in the never-ending battle of good over evil.
